    Nope, I'm not talked around on that one. The fact is many women will need it.

    The gap is a given, the best way of addressing it is the debate.

    well said vicpark. If only people would understand that there is no disrespect intended.

    It was well said, and I took no offence. I'm not sure if you're trying to somehow relate it to your earlier posts though?

I really think you suffer from some sort of low self esteem because clearly people here find that attitude offputting. I think you should be extremely grateful and happy with what you have, so it shouldn't matter to a bunch of folk online think of your possessions.

    FTR loads of SAHMs work very hard. I'm sure lots of people don't work hard. Why does it matter? I don't think I work particularly hard - am I unworthy?
    Im not calling anyone slack and nor do i care what people think in all honesty and for the record i am very grateful for what i have, life could not be better. low Self esteem....what is that ? Something I have never had a problem with that's for sure, what a stupid accusation. And which is why I am so defensive. I do have a problem with being stalked and critiqued by stupid people with nothing better to do.

    Super over a life time collects a good amount of interest though, that is the trade off

    ok so once again I ask for someone to actually point out what it was that I said that is offensive. All I have done is state what I think and some have purely just not agreed and slammed me for it. Funny how I have had a lot of pm's this afternoon of support by people who agree with what I have said but don't have the courage to say it on here for fear of the backlash.
